So to lower the bed down, theres ONE motor which is working fine, and TWO long spiral rods that screw, turned by the motor to lower the back down
Only side is working (remember its the SAME motor for both)

ANy ideas? maybe jammed, im guessing its a cable with gearing on the end?
Any way to manually lower it if i cant fix this?

ahhhhhh I think the problem is the thread inside the thing the end of the cable goes into is chewed up.
The square rod inside the cable is turning, its just not doing anything
I might be able to swap the one from the forward and back motor to this one
ZERO chance of getting a replacement part I spose

so in case anyone is following this..........

The plastic worm gear inside where the cable meets the long screwer was stripped out, which is why one side of the bed wasnt going back.
SO I stole the worm gear out of the assembly for the forwards and back mech.
Doesnt go forward and back now but at least the bed goes up n down!

Again if anyone knows where I could get replacements, please LMK

Don't know if you'll find one of those. Hope so.

If not, you might be able to get a company to print you one.
